The Bodmer K144 is an extremely popular modeling and pottery clay thanks to its dark brown to black burning color. The firing color of this Manganese clay appears at temperatures ranging from 1020-1100 ° C. The hotter the clay is burned, the darker is its burning color. It is well suited for spinning, modeling and small plate works. Bodmer slips can also be applied to the leather-hard clay. Especially with bright slips or glazes very nice effects can be achieved.
Note: Manganese clays are similar in fire behavior to stoneware clays. The burning leads to a slight softening of the buiscuit. Therefore, all objects must rest with their entire base area on the oven plate.
